Barn Permit Plans Egress Update (revision 4)

These plans were submitted to amend the exit route allowing egress through the sliding door of the old barn. The egress is enabled by putting a man door in the sliding door and positioning the man door so that if the sliding door is opened an acceptable egress exists when the man door passes beyond the side of the aisle opening.

Egress Paths through the 6 bay old barn.

Barn Permit Plans Apartment Update (revision 3)

These plans were submitted to amend the building permit a second time. They add the apartment and raise the roof in the hayloft perimeter to make better use of the hayloft space. Unfortunately the north windows of the apartment have to be eliminated to accomplish this.

Permit Plans Update Removes 'Future' Items

These plans update the overall design to remove all mention of the apartment, bathroom and fixtures that require plumbing (listed as future items in the 12/28 permit plans). They were required by the town to issue a building permit for the barn while pool septic system repair was incomplete. Everyone agreed that the plans could be amended to add the septic related systems once the pool septic repair was complete.

Structural Analysis

Foundation Plans Moved for Survey Issues

Final survey data showed the barn to be 6 inches off in the GLM survey. The arena and new barn positions were adjusted to maintain setback clearances. These new positions are reflected in the architectural plans dated 17 September 2017 and any later updates.

Code Compilance

Code compliance was performed by Harold Cutler. The code that applies is the Eighth edition of the Mass. building code which consists of the 2009 IBC with Mass amendments. The result of that compliance analysis was included verbatum as text in the overall architectural plans. These plans were submitted as part of the initial arena design and have been included with each sucessive set of architectural plans. On 1 February 2018 Mr. Cutler when asked if we could use his name and credentials said by email: "Thatís fine. I have been an integral part of the development of the plans for the project and concur with the accessory use designation given the restriction to occupancy of the apartment by a barn manager." In actual fact the characterization of the apartment as an accessory use was first used in a draft of the code analysis by Mr. Cutler.

Fire Alarm

A business grade fire alarm system is installed. This is the Fire alarm record of completion.

Sprinklers

A complete discussion of sprinkers and fire alarm requirements is in the Sprinkler Appeal page.

Septic Discussion with the Board of Health

Civilized Solutions prepared a 31 January 2017 letter for the Board of Health discussing why the existing septic system could support an additional bedroom. The letter states that the system can support a 5 bedroom flow with a 50 percent overcapacity for the installation of a garbage grinder. No garbage grinder is installed or planned.

Wildstar's expectation in addition to this letter is that the site should be considered as a multi-structure campus in the same way as the Pope campus at 26 Bullard Street was considered. The bedroom count evaluation there was performed on a building by building basis rather than by adding up the room count of each building.

The existing house at 16 Nason Hill Lane contains four bedrooms. The current assessment records have this narrative:

This parcel contains 11.3 ACRES of land mainly classified as ONE FAM with a CONTEMP Building built about 1980, having primarily WOOD Exterior and 8445 Square Feet, with 1 Unit, 4 Baths, 0 3/4 Bath, 1 HalfBath, 9 Rooms, and 4 Bdrms.

Spelling and capitalization from the narrative.

The health agent gets a slightly different room count by counting one of the basement rooms. He also considered the kitchen and dining room a single room.

The barn and associated apartment contain one bedroom. There are two conditioned rooms in the apartment plus the tack room and office. There is one bathroom in the apartment and on half bath adjacent to the tack room. There is also an entry-way containing a sink and washer/dryer adjacent to the tack room.

The Board of Health indicated that they would approve this system with a deed restriction when a full septic plan for the barn was proposed.

Drainage and Septic Layout

Joe Marquedant is following on from the work by Civilized Solutions. He has completed drainage plans for the barn and arena:
Drainage Page 1
Drainage Page 2
As well as a septic design:
Septic Page 1
Septic Page 2
On Monday 14 November 2017 the Board of Health approved these plans giving the health agent authority to grant final approvals when Fred King renews his license. The Board wants the pool septic repair completed before approval of the apartment. The pipe was lined from the new pumping chamber up to the pool house. The final approval is still pending a signoff from GLM. Unfortunately the septic engineer that was doing the work has left GLM.

Septic Layout

Civilized Solutions proposed two possible choices for the septic layout and connection to the existing septic system. The Gravity system is the selected strategy.

Gravity fed septic design This passes under the chicken coop and runs entirely by gravity. Supplement Sheet 1
Pumped septic design This has less disturbance but requires a pump and associated alarm.

The septic system from the barn to the D-box of the house septic system was built, inspected by Mark Oram and approved for cover. This is the as build septic plan.

Poolhouse Septic Repair

When the house was purchased a cesspool was found southeast of the outdoor pool that supported a toilet and shower in the pool house. This failed title 5. The sellers provided an approved design for repair of this system that replaced the cesspool with a pumped system. The pump basin joins the house septic system. The initial design did not have a cleanout anywhere in this line and was updated to add the cleanout. The pump basin and forced main were constructed after the purchase of the house. The septic system for the barn apartment requires that this pool house repair is completed prior to approval.

Pool septic repair initial design This design is what was presented to the board of health. It required modification to add cleanouts.

As built plan for pool septic repair.

Site Information

The surveyors provided these Pin Locations to reference where the foundation goes. This detail is important because the retaining wall does not have easy corners to pin. The locations were taken from the 17 September 2017 design.

REVISED Setbacks SKETCH - 16 NASON HILL LANE.pdf Shows 30 foot rear setback in the area of the planned barn and riding ring. This sketch was used in a dialog with the building inspector. It represents what the building inspector agreed by email should be used for the lot line setbacks and the strategy depicted is what is used in all barn planning.

Setback Requirements

These setback requirements (revised version) were proposed by GLM and confirmed by email with building inspector Henry Fontaine who said: 'As I review I agree with what you have with the exception of the front set-back, it is 60 feet.'. The original sketch incorrectly showed 40 foot distance at the front of the lot while calling out a front setback.

Use of Native Lumber

To be able to use the trees cut from the land Wildstar is has become a certified mill. This allows Wildstar to certify native lumber for structural use. This email chain with Mass. DPS shows the trials and tribulations of that process.
